Those that go down the workshop can see the progress when ever they are around and seeing as the people that are helping me on this project are Headcrackers I thought it only right that the Resto thread went up on there and obviously on DubLovin to. Sorry guys I don't have the time to do 3 threads so please check out one of these if you are interested in knowing what is going on or just pop in the workshop and have a look.

To wet your appetite it is going to be a Rod with a number of differences that is definatley going to be noticed.

The chequer plate has been riveted on and then seam sealed top and bottom nothing is gonna get through ever, plus also when the body is ready it is gonna be welded on to the floor pan by sinking some box section into the bottom of the body. It isn't ever coming apart punk

Thats totally Vince's area but I don't think it needs it as the floor pan is so solid it's unreal I just go with what he says as he knows what he is doing. Oh and all being well I should have your model on Sunday as the guy is back from Poland and unless anything goes tits up he will be at Slough.
